Giggs: The REAL reason I quit Man Utd after Mourinho arrival



Ryan Giggs has explained why he left Manchester United after the arrival of Jose Mourinho.

The United legend spent 29 years at Old Trafford as a player and a coach.

He believes he made the right decision not to continue working at United under Mourinho and is now looking for a head coaching position elsewhere.

“It was the right time. There was a new manager and a new coaching staff,” he explained to the Manchester Evening News.

“It was a brilliant two years education wise, but it was a tough two years. I was ready for a break away from football.”

The 42-year-old remains on the market but the dream for him is to manage United.

Giggs said: “I’ve always said for me, and for most people, you always want to manage the club you’ve played at.

“If you ask Steven Gerrard, he will want to manage Liverpool or England, and it’s the same for me with United and Wales.

“I played at United for so long, if the opportunity came to manage them it would be the ultimate.”
